End Of Season Announcement

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the push from health officials to limit social interaction we have made the hard decision to cancel the rest of the MCCG Putting League at 5 Star Lanes. The nature of our competition does not allow for the social distancing of 6’ to be maintained. Combine that with the recent order from the governor to close all bars to close at 3pm today we would not have a venue.
Double Tap membership merch have not yet been picked up. They will be available ... more

Rob Dahmen   March 16 at 6:14pm

Gary, I appreciate you comment on this matter. I will certainly look to you next year when we start up again and need to lay this out for the new year. Maybe we can come up with an idea that both benefits players with higher points, and still utilize a playoff system. Singles? Based on percentages? Byes? who know! we have 7 month to come up with something!

New Season Changes

With less than a week until putting league starts (11/4) I want to introduce a few changes we are looking to introduce to make the league more interesting and competitive.

WEEKLY FEE - Since putting league was started 11 years ago the price ($5) has never changed. This year I would like to increase to $10 to not only grow the pot for playoff (winning team split $160 instead of $80) but I hope this to also makes people take the competition a little more seriously. If I receive a lot of push ... more

I cant get out to play this year. I was wondering if I bought into double tap membership if I can still participate in the double tap on the nights that I cant participate in the league?

Rob Dahmen   October 30 at 8:31pm

Just like previous years we are going to keep the rule that you need to be participating in theleague that night to be eligible to purchase tickets that night. So, in short, sorry Dave, no.

New season announcement

With the summer leagues coming to a close it is time to look forward to the winter season. With that of course comes the MCCG Putting League at 5 Star Lanes. This league and grown very popular with last year averaging 45 players every week. With this though it is quite a commitment from the organizers to be there every night for an 18 week season. This year a few of the staff are looking to take some of their Monday's back and enjoying the option to show up when they want. With that, w ... more
